I installed a dishwasher.

In your workplace?

It's to scrub the bugs out of his code.

Just an educated guess.

I installed a dishwasher.

I discovered that my dishwasher was manufactured in Kentucky. I guess that means I need to take it out of my kitchen and put it up on blocks on my front porch like a true redneck.

Yes, but you'll need to run all the connections to it so it may continue to work in your yard, if you want to truly be a redneck.

There are some redneck projects that have hack value, oddly.

I'm kinda bummed that my fancy dancy new dishwasher doesnt' actually clean as well as my older dishwasher. But that's okay, it's newer and cost twice as much.
More progress.

Hmm ... a *working* dishwasher on the front porch? That might be cool ... I could hook up the drain line to a lawn sprinkler so it waters, washes, and feeds (via dissolved food scraps) the lawn (Kentucky bluegrass, I guess) when it runs.

I've never met anyone from Kentucky who wasn't a complete asshole. However, I'm working with a sample size of one person, so my assessment might be a little bit off.

I forget... I might have had distant cousins who lived in Kentucky.  But then, it might have been Tennessee instead.  I can't remember.

They don't live there now, though.  I think they're in Michigan.  And, honestly, they weren't really from Kentucky anyway... they were from Michigan.

Heh. I'm sure there are plenty of nice people in Kentucky; I'm just playing games with statistics.

Oh, I know... but I'm pondering things, I think.

I lived for a while not terribly far from it, in the grand scheme of things, but I don't know much about it.

Isn't kentucky bluegrass a kind of country music?

Big Company(tm) escalation from the 9 circle of hell.  Which wouldn't quite as hellish if there were an actual *reason* for the level of insanity and time-waste caused.  Bah.

Yes, it is.

today.. wasted several hours to diskuss whether to deliver a missing close() in a destructor or not.

ok, we're in a very late phase of the project, but WTF?

Do you have more than 5 people developing the product?

Such conversations seem to just happen in such cases.

well, 7 + 5(web) developers here, 5 qa guys, two PMs, plus around the same in france, plus another team for the deployment and running the live systems of similar size.

but, I wouldn't say it was easier before the people in france came into the game.

It got a little more complicated that we couldn't reproduce the CLOSE_WAIT condition from the remote system on our development systems, so we couldn't tell we actually fixed the incident...

Yep, over 5.

But, at least you've got two teams.  That helps, at least a little.

Indeed, fleeb.

If it makes you feel any better, Bart, today I incorporated the latest round of "edits" to a weekly status report from a VP.  It was a 90 min conversation and represented the 5th iteration.  First draft of "next week's" report is due on Friday.

I'm starting to miss my b0rk3d Small Company(tm)
